Ian Allan, 1st ed., 1985. 128 pp., frontis. + numerous photo-ills. D.j., 24 x 17cm. FINE. The author’s examination of the Royal Engineers looks briefly at the background history before devoting its main attention to the organisation, roles and equipment of the Royal Engineers today. When there is a minefield to cross, a river to be bridged, a crater to be filled or a road to be built, it is down to the Royal Engineers. Their extraordinary range of tasks is well covered here.
